HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - All islands, except the Big Island, are under a brown water advisory.

The public is urged to stay out of the any storm water run-off and floodwaters to prevent serious health issues.

As of Friday morning, the Schofield Barracks Wastewater Treatment Plant is discharging effluent into the Kaukonahua Stream which pours into Haleiwa Harbor.

The Waimanalo Gulch is releasing stormwater into the drainage system over the next few days.

Tens of thousands of gallons of sewage have spilled into bays and harbors around Oahu.
